New York based artist, KOORTWAH, has just unveiled a stunning new video for his song Forty Five.

By Christopher Stribley in Cool Websites on Friday 23 November 2012

Tilda Swinton. That’s really all I need to say and your head fills with images, right? She’s a force to be reckoned with, a true chameleon, and she is perfect in whatever form she adopts. She’s always unmistakably … Tilda. The Tweets in this account capture her preternatural essence beautifully, cleverly, and at times hilariously. […]

Awesome Slayer Christmas Sweater

By Christopher Stribley in New Fashion on Thursday 22 November 2012

I’m going to be polite and refrain from using the ‘C’ word here, but it’s that time of the year again. We all know someone who’s just impossible to buy for, but I’m not one of those people. In fact I’m pretty easy to please and usually when these occasions roll around I’d be quite […]

Cut the World: new single by Antony and the Johnsons

Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in New Music on Tuesday 21 August 2012

On August 7, Antony & the Johnsons released a new album of live orchestral versions of some of their best songs, featuring arrangements by Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, Maxim Moston and Antony. In addition to these splendid reworkings and a very interesting, humorous, and informative speech from Antony, is the achingly gorgeous title track, Cut the World. As beautiful as the song is, with Antony’s soaring vocals, the sweeping strings, and lilting brass, the video for the song is a magnificently disturbing work of art.

New Lady Aiko mural on Houston Street, New York

Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in New Art on Tuesday 17 July 2012

Last night, I had the great luck of catching Lady Aiko in the act of working on her new mural on Houston Street. The wall, which was home to a famous Keith Haring mural back in 1982, has been home to a number of great murals in recent years. As wonderful as it has been to have this area brought to life by the likes of Os GemeosFAILE,Retna, and JR, there has also been a lot of resent from people who wanted the original Keith Haring mural to always be there.

So what is left, but to find out how older people feel about it, which is exactly what The Fine Bros have done with their video, Elders React to Dubstep.

Religious icons given a Superhero makeover

By Christopher Stribley in New Art on Friday 8 June 2012

I love Superheros and I love religious iconography, so when saw this guy’s artwork, it was immediately a ‘why didn’t I think of that moment’. He takes statues and images of religious icons and gives them a Superhero makeover. They all look so comfortable in their new attire, too.

TUMBLR: Celebrities with One Tiny Hand

Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in Cool Websites on Thursday 29 March 2012

There are some great themed Tumblrs out there, from Casually Pepper Spraying Cops, to Chicks with Steve Buscemi Eyes. Then there’s the life-affirming Fuuuu Comics. Recently, a new Tumblr has found a special place in my heart: One Tiny Hand. Celebritites old and new are given a new lease on life on this blog, which reimagines them or someone near them with one tiny hand. Although I’ve looked pretty carefully the image of Kim Kardashian on there and I’m pretty sure it’s undoctored.

Psychobabble interpretation of Madonna’s half-time show

Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in New Trends on Friday 16 March 2012

Like her or hate her, you have to admit that Madonna provided quite a spectacle for her half-time show at this year’s Super Bowl. Not content with just enjoying a great show, this blogger felt the need to provide a rather warped interpretation of the performance. While it’s a load of psychobabble, I have to say the writer did provide some great pics and it’s rather entertaining, all in all.
